Bellinter House and Bathhouse
Standing majestically on the banks of the River Boyne in the rolling landscape of County Meath, Bellinter House exudes period glamour. Built in 1750, the house was designed by the renowned German architect Richard Castle or Cassels, who also designed the Irish Parliament and the Leinster House in Dublin. Bellinter House and Bathhouse is located just under an hour from Dublin city and Dublin Airport.
The House meticulously preserves its classic Georgian heritage while enhancing it with the best of modern Irish design. Elaborate decorative plasterwork, marble fireplaces and wood paneled walls mix easily with elemental hand-made ash furniture, contemporary lighting, installation art and vintage and handmade furniture.
The grounds at Bellinter are extensive and have sweeping lawns, ancient trees and a number of secluded spots to relax and laze. There is a labyrinth of local bridle paths, footpaths and trails to explore while bicycles and wellingtons are available for guests to borrow. For the more energetic, hot air ballooning, golf, horse riding and clay pigeon shooting can be arranged. With private fishing rights to 3 miles of the river Boyne, a ghillie to assist and gourmet picnics, Bellinter shines on the river.
